Vera is a renaissance town in the levante area. It is centrally located for easy access to the main E15 Autovia taking you to Almeria city, the south coasts, Murcia and the North.
Within minutes you can be on one of the many beautiful beaches whilst enjoying shopping, cafes and restaurants on your doorstep.
Originally called Baria and located at Villaricos, Rich Village, due to silver mining industry, Vera relocated in the 13th century to the ground it stands on today.
The Christian conquest in 1488, a massive earthquake in 1518 and the Moorish rebellion in 1568 have all contributed to the character of the town and its inhabitants.
There are many wonderful pieces of architecture and folklore to be explored. Much of which is lovingly explained in the Ethnographic and Archaeological Museum.
Spain is well known for its fiestas and street parties and Vera is no exception. With such a rich history and a sense of value the Spanish take every opportunity to remind visitors and young ones alike of their culture.
The Plaza de Toros, Bullring, built in 1879 is the setting for many fiestas, bull fighting and other cultural displays.
But dont be fooled into thinking this is a sleepy old town stuck in the past. Vera has merged its history with the requirements of modern life superbly.
It is a bustling hive of activity and has a wonderful eclectic mix of shop, bars and restaurants to suit all tastes. Saturday is market day where the whole of the main street becomes a market place where you can buy anything from a frying pan to beautiful rugs, handbags, shoes and much more.
